Time is running out for filming in 2020 as the series has to be filmed during the long days of the British summer. Which, according to a July 2020 deadline report, appears to be the case.

Series creator and writer Laurie Nunn was already hard at work on the script for a third season long before Netflix renewed the series. In an interview with LADbible, Nunn discusses the show's hectic work schedule, noting that the process of writing another season before the confirmed renewal is essential to the running of the television production. When asked about the potential for future stories, Nunn said, "I love writing these characters. It's such a big ensemble and I think the theme of the show, in terms of sex and relationships, really offers endless story opportunities."
Sex Education season 2 moved away from its focus on Otis
and instead chose to give almost equal time to the wonderfully diverse characters around her. New queer internet icon Eric (Gatwa) has benefited the most from this change in show structure, allowing for a nuanced and poignant look at the struggles of a young queer black man.

While some fans have criticized this story as a contrived extension of the character's current love dilemma, the show's director is avoiding any potential backlash. In a conversation with BT, Ben Taylor said: "I think shoes will be thrown onto screens. In a good way. I love being put on stuff. You think you want it, but you don't." don't.” There are many more children with the supporting cast to be picked up in Season 3 of Sex Education.

Sex Education is one of the best shows on Netflix
Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter about future developments for the show, Nunn is excited about where she and her writers can occupy the eclectic cast. “These characters... have legs. I think she could do more with them given the chance,” she said. "He's very supportive and really wants us to tell the stories we're passionate about. It really seems like we're all on the same page, wanting to do the same show. "This is an exciting prospect for a show run primarily by diverse young talent in front of and behind the camera. It's not hard to see why sex education has had such an impact on fans. It offers a very human and non-judgmental look at the issues facing not only teenagers, but also many adults who are still coming to terms with their own sexuality. Nunn's writing is remarkably sharp, and the show's inclusiveness makes it a great addition to Netflix's growing library of stories and progressive media. Bring on season 3.
